Tim i've got a 2002 ZX4 sitting in my back yard with no motor are trans in it. I have a friend that has a welding and fab shop. We are going to watch your build and see how it goes and we just might build a 4 door sleeper. I priced all that conversion stuff and i can't see $6000.00 for something we can build. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK !!!!!!

You could have built a NA v-8 Focus and made more power than your old turbo 4 for the same or less money as well.

how does the wire go?
do you have to get new guages or can you use the stock guages?
and do you use the focus ecu,new engine ecu and ms to controll it all or is it just the ms with the new engine ecu?
